    At last night's 2013 Emmy Awards, actor Don Cheadle offered a rambling salute to the power of TV. Starting with Walter Cronkite's emotional reporting of Pres. Kennedy's assignation and moving on to other touchstones of leftist history, Cheadle argued that TV is the binding force of modern society. TV tells society what to feel, how to think, and what is OK to express openly. TV is the vanguard and constitution of all that is worthwhile. Cheadle's eyes tracked the teleprompter as if in disbelief of the propaganda he was required to spew. Far from an assertion of dominance, Cheadle's speech...
  • The Voice Of Rocky And Natasha Earns An Emmy (June Foray, 95)

    NPR ^ | September 15, 2013
    The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show featured a fearless flying squirrel and his slow-witted moose sidekick. They did battle with two scheming but incompetent Soviet spies named Boris and Natasha. The cartoon is an American classic, beloved for a wry sense of humor that appeals to kids and their parents. It originally aired from 1959 until 1964, but has been in syndication ever since, most recently on the Cartoon Network and Boomerang. June Foray was the voice behind Rocky the Squirrel, and the evil Natasha. Now 95, she's receiving the prestigious Governor's Award Sunday at the Creative Arts Emmys. Foray is...

    Deadliest Catch was nominated this season for four Emmy's. "Deadliest Catch" went up against "Myth Busters" for Outstanding Reality Program and won. "Deadliest Catch" also captured the Emmy for Outstanding Cinematography, Outstanding Picture Editing and Outstanding sound mixing. This is great news for fans (and cast members and producers and editors and cameramen) who've been watching the show for a long time. The creative arts industry has affirmed and acknowledged the intelligent and inspiring television that most of its viewers have seen as the show developed into a more intense interpersonal drama from a random story of water cowboys searching...

    Al Pacino Wins Emmy Award for Movie on Euthanasia Advocate Jack Kevorkian Hollywood, CA -- In another example of the Hollywood elite glorifying those actors and films that promote anti-life values, Al Pacino won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Jack Kevorkian in the HBO film, "You Don't Know Jack." Pacino portrayed the assisted suicide crusader who was eventually jailed for killing a disabled man in a televised euthanasia. http://LifeNews.com/bio3154.html

    Effective for the 2010-2011 awards year, the Main Title Theme category will be eliminated and replaced with a new category, “Music Composition for a Nonfiction Program.” Details about the placement of main title theme achievements are still being discussed by the Music PGEC. This change was made due to the decreasing number or traditional television main title theme music. Please note the following additional information regarding the music category: While the Board of Governors has formally approved the intent to make the change in 2010, it has given the music branch time to come back with its final decision.

    If there was a theme running through the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, broadcast Sept. 20 on CBS, it was one of wry desperation. From host Neil Patrick Harris' opening number--with its chorus imploring "Don't touch that remote!"--to Tina Fey's, tongue-in-cheek "thank you" to NBC Universal executives for keeping 30 Rock "on the air even though we are so much more expensive than a talk show," this year's Emmys played like an elegy to a dying business model. Mathew Wiener, the creator and executive producer of AMC's Mad Men, which took home its second consecutive Emmy for outstanding drama series,...

    TONI Collette has won the Emmy for her American TV series, United States of Tara. She won the outstanding actress in a comedy Emmy, beating favourite Tina Fey for 30 Rock. Sydney-born Collette is no stranger to big Hollywood awards nights after being nominated for an Oscar for her supporting performance in the 1999 thriller Sixth Sense and an Emmy in 2007 for the TV mini-series Tsunami: The Aftermath.

    Tina Fey recently won an Emmy for her uncanny resemblance and venomous impersonation of Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin. In accepting her award, Fey was her typical, obloquious self saying, “Mrs. Palin is an inspiration to working mothers everywhere because she bailed on her job right before Fourth of July weekend. You are living my dream. Thank you, Mrs. Palin!” 2008 marked a departure from the memorable, more cordial years of Chevy Chase as a clumsy Gerald Ford or Dana Carvey’s hilarious H.W. Bush: “wouldn’t be prudent.” Fey was downright mean.

    The much anticipated list finally arrived. Many hard working producers, writers, and actors waited with baited breath to hear the possibly career-changing announcement; hoping that their dedication to their craft and the constant effort to produce quality television had paid off. And then they realized, "Oh wait, the Emmys have ignored us for years..." It's a point driven home this year with the surprise (but not really) nomination of "Family Guy." Family Guy has been nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Unlike previous years, these nominations were decided by popular vote. Essentially,...

    Now that Current TV - the 2-year-old San Francisco network founded by former Vice President Al Gore - just became the youngest network to win an Emmy, it hopes to leverage the award into something it doesn't have too many of: viewers. Indeed, online search requests for Current soared after it won an Emmy on Sunday for outstanding creative achievement in interactive television service. In a nod to the growing influence of online media in television, Sunday's telecast marked the first time the 5-year-old award was given during the prime-time Emmy telecast, with Gore and Current co-founder Joel Hyatt in...

    You had to know Al Gore was likely to win the Creative Achievement in Interactive Television category for his Current network when Emmy producers decided to move the wonky category from the Creative Arts ceremony to the main prime-time show (tough to imagine somebody taking the Emmy stage to accept an award on behalf of fellow nominees MLB Mosaic or the BIAP Fantasy Football Television Tracker). Gore is a mainstream celebrity now, and his global warming campaign fits with Fox’s eco-theme (an odd marriage that’s taking a while to get used to). When he took the stage, Gore was in...

    August 7, 2006 -- AN Emmy nomination for a performance lasting ap proximately 11 seconds is puzzling Hollywood insiders and raising questions about how the TV Academy chooses its nominees. The recipient of this questionable honor is Ellen Burstyn, whose role in an HBO movie about the murder of the Scarsdale Diet doctor required her to do nothing more than sit in a chair and speak three sentences of dialogue in a vaguely foreign accent. For this blink-and-you'll-miss-her performance, members of the august Academy of Television Arts & Sciences nominated the 73-year-old actress for an Emmy Award in the category...
